Playlist: Episode #748, July 15, 2018 – A Tribute to Tributes

On this episode, I go through my large collection of tribute albums, both single-artist and various, and pull out some gems, as well as play some great listener suggestions.

This is one of those timeless “standby” episodes that you may hear again someday, but the music is so good that you won’t mind a bit!
